Panthers Have More Needs and Many Picks

NFL holds 2010 draft in New York

Day Three of the 2010 NFL Draft is set to begin in the next few minutes. By the time this is posted, it will have already begun.

On their first day of making draft selections, shockwaves were sent through Panthers Nation, as Carolina took quarterback Jimmy Clausen with it’s first overall pick at No. 48 in the second-round.

But the Panthers did address an area of need with the pick, and if he turns out to be as good as advertised, he will be a steal.

Carolina also addressed an area of need double-fold, with the selection of LSU wideout Brandon LaFell, and Appalachian State quarterback-turned-wideout Armanti Edwards.

So what areas of need will the Panthers address in the fourth- through seventh-rounds?

Here are the remaining areas of defensive need in order:

  1. Defensive end
  2. Defensive tackle
  3. Cornerback
  4. Linebacker

The Panthers still have picks in the fourth, sixth, and seventh-rounds; with multiple picks in the sixth- and seventh-rounds.

Keep it here, and we’ll see how the rest of the draft shakes out for the Carolina Panthers.

  • Mike

    Eric Norwood, good pick, but thay need to sure up that d-line

    • Eric Quackenbush

      I think we’ll see some bolstering of the defensive line with our next pick. Not sure if we’ll see the Panthers move up in the fifth by trading a couple of their sixth-rounders, or maybe they’ll see someone they like falling to them at 175.

      I love the Norwood pick…Solid move. He’ll do well in Meeks’ system.
